Further to our last communication, we along with the hotel have been closely monitoring the PHE and UK Government guidelines as they have evolved over the past week. As we know, the situation with regard to COVID-19 changes on an hourly basis.
TL:DR - No - this IS important. Please read :-)
Message from the Concentric 2020 Committee:
The Eastercon committee met with the Hilton on Friday and discussed with them the concerns of the Eastercon membership. We asked about their policies on refunds for the event and any rooms booked with the potential issues from Covid-19. The Hilton have confirmed to the committee that, as the government's stance at this point is business as usual, they will not be offering any additional or exceptional circumstances towards bookings that have already been made.
We are delighted to announce the premiere of Andrew Wallace’s solo SF show “Deviant Database” at Concentric. This is the 5 Black Mirror-style near-future nightmares, 3 of which have been performed at Virtual Futures in London.
We are delighted to announce our newest Guest of Honour, Adam Roberts. Details to follow soon.
